The county board provides and/or coordinates the following services:
1. Early Intervention Services: We use Evidenced Based practices to provide effective intervention services to infants, toddlers, and their families, from birth up to age three, who have a developmental delay or are at risk of delay. With the support of the entire early intervention team, a Primary Service Provider coaches parents and caregivers in the child’s natural environment, focusing on the family’s strengths while supporting and empowering parents to meet their child’s unique developmental needs.
2. Family Supprt Services: Family Support Service is a supplemental program that provides supports, services and assistance in caring for a family member with disabilities at home to enhance the quality of life for that family, including the individual with developmental disabilities. The FSS program is administered through the ACBDDs.
3. Individual Support Services: Eligibility determination, residential supports, adult services funding and Medicaid waiver services are provided through coordination between the ACBDD and WestCON Council of Governments.
4. Service Support Administrators: SSA’s provide services including advocacy, investigations of allegations of abuse and neglect, service coordination, plan development and monitoring, quality assurance, crisis intervention and assurance of free choice of provider.
